Shooting the colonial


Shot the .45 colonial pistol for the first time this weekend. Nice boom, lots of smoke, but I can't hit much with it, lol!

Awesome Pic!! I don't think those things were meant to be accurate? I think you shot the guy then flipped it around and started bashing heads in!

yup, I think you're right, lol! The other one that I shot was my English Tower pistol. That sucker don't even have sights! We did one day of pistols at my buddys, I brought those two, along with a Griswold, a Pietta S & G shorty, and my 1860. Fired some of his Remmy's and a Mason-Richards conversion. Next day was rifles, .50 cal Hawken, .32 cal squirrel gun, 54 cal, and a flintlock, think that was also 50 cal. The highlight of the day was shooting an old 1800's vintage 38 cal long rifle that hadn't been shot in over 100 yrs. Trying to trace it's lineage, got a line on the lockmaker, but the rest of the rifle is a mystery. Fun weekend though!

I have one, the problem is the front sight is too short. But allows for fun shooting.
